Continence in Heidelberg, Camberwell and Footscray
Incontinence is a problem that affects many men and women throughout Australia. Urinary incontinence affects one in three women who have ever had a baby, 66% of people with chronic lung conditions and 38% of athletes. A Deloite study in 2011 of Australian spending found that there are $4.8 million Australians living with incontinence, the cost to Australia was $42.9 billion, and the personal cost to those Australians was $191.2 million.
Incontinence is a topic which has historically been shunned within the community and not talked about. Until recently. With the large scale marketing of LBL (Light Bladder Leakage) products by numerous personal hygiene companies, people are now becoming aware of products to make it easier to manage these embarrassing conditions. Whilst these products may help, we have another solution… Consult a specialist continence and pelvic floor physiotherapist!
The pelvic floor is made up of multiple muscles that form a sling like structure that helps support the abdominal and pelvic contents, assists in faecal and urinary continence, and is involved in sexual function.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is an easy way to fix urinary or faecal incontinence for good. Our specialist pelvic floor and continence physiotherapists treats men, women and children for all continence issues. They utilise specialised real time ultrasound equipment and complex clinical assessment to diagnose and treat pelvic floor issues.
Why let incontinence limit your social life, be the cause of embarrassment or stop you exercising any longer!
